Samael

Samael artwork originating from Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne

Samael (サマエル, Samaeru)? is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

Samael is an archangel in Talmudic lore. He has been known as the seducer, destroyer, accuser and has been regarded as both good and evil in various texts. In rabbinic lore he was revealed as the chief of Satan's armies and as the Angel of Death. His name means "poison of God", suggesting he is either the vengeful hand of God or the enemy of God, and it has even been suggested that Samael is the angelic name of Satan himself.

In some early Jewish lore, Samael is the Angel of Death and chief ruler of the Fifth Heaven with two million angels at his command, residing himself within the Seventh Heaven. He was also said to be the guardian angel of Esau (older brother of Jacob, who was renamed Israel, father of the Jews). In the Sayings of Rabbi Eliezer, Samael is charged with being the one who seduced and impregnated Eve with Cain. Other scholars suggest it was Azazel who seduced Eve and it was Samael who tempted Eve in the guise of the Serpent.

In The Holy Kabbalah, Samael is named as the fifth archangel in the world of Briah who took Lilith as his bride when she left Adam. He was also said to have mated with several of the angels of prostitution.

In some forms of Gnosticism, Samael is an alternate name for the Demiurge.

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

"Origin: Israel. His name means 'God's malice.' A fallen angel who appears with a sword, bow, and arrow. He was an archangel who once ruled over Mars. It's said he fell from grace when Adam was banished from Paradise."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

Samael is the demon summoned at the top of the Diet Building by Hikawa to slay the protagonist if he attempts to stop him from offering Yuko Takao as a sacrifice. If the Demi-fiend is aligned with Shijima, Samael will later appear after the encounter with Ahriman in the Tower of Kagutsuchi, introducing himself and explaining that Hikawa instructed him to assist the protagonist, as he represents the champion of Shijima. Should the Demi-fiend accept his offer, Samael will join him, or if there is already one in the player's party or if he refuses, Samael hopes his services will be called upon later.

Alternatively, after fighting Samael or after having had him in the party, he is fusable through Sacrificial Fusion by arranging a fusion result of a Divine Throne and sacrificing any Vile demon.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

Appears as one of the three bosses of the Catacombs gold instance in Shinagawa. By obtaining his plug-in item and twenty of each of the fruit that drop from the mobs within the instance, a player is able to fuse him in a special fusion of Pazuzu, Uriel, and Queen Mab.

He is particularly notable for his signature skill God's Malice, an almighty affinity area of effect attack that inflicts ailments and recovers his HP.

Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit

Samael appears as the strongest member of the Fallen race. He can be recruited from the wild in Lucifer Palace, or created through fusion, both provided that Flynn has reached level 90. There are no special requirements to summon him.

As in Strange Journey, Samael is required for the Special Fusion of Demiurge, the strongest demon available in the main game.

Majin Tensei II: Spiral NemesisEdit

Samael is faced as a boss in the Neutral route in Paranoia, where he guards the base in the desert region of Nesdia.

Persona 4Edit

"A mysterious angel with the name 'poison of God'. He is often shown as a serpent. Opinions differ on whether he is fallen or not, but either way, he is linked with death."
Persona 4 Compendium

A persona that can be retrieved from Shuffle Time in the Void Quest dungeon.

TriviaEdit

  • Samael's HP or MP throughout the series is more than often 616, or sometimes, 666. As with Satan's HP, 616 is believed by some to have been the original Number of the Beast in the Book of Revelation in the Christian Bible.
  • The Porewit's appearance in Majin Tensei is directly based on Samael's original artwork, and even has the same color scheme. Samael is otherwise not featured in the game.
  • Samael's appearance in Majin Tensei II is a sprite edit of Aniel.
  • Samael is contained in leftover data for Devil Survivor 2. He is level 74 and is of the Fallen race.
